Ascent Trip Report

Sup under the stars at John Brown's Farm after Tabletop - Middle Peak with a car nap at Marcy Field. Start at the Garden for John's Brook Lodge (JBL) after an early breakfast. A bit spent from earlier trek, took easier walk to backside of Yard. No ridge running for me this day. The final pitch of trail from Klondike Brook weaves up, along, by, and around among some imposing cliffs. A short sunny nap at JBL's clearing and an outside faucet of potable water (courtesy of ADK Club) refreshed my saunter and walk back to the Garden.
